But with all the problems popping up about the 840 series having the slow down bug, and the firmware issues people are having with the 850 series it scared me. I have a Crucial M500 but I was not all that impressed with reviews on the new Crucial MX & BX series. The Sandisk SSD’s sounded like a good option but I decided to go with the Mushkin Reactor.
Now that I have the machine all finished I have been able to test the Reactor SSD out.
EXCELLENT, once I made the normal SSD tweaks to Windows 7 like turning off the Search service and tweaks to disable PreFetching and Superfetch the Mushkin Reactor is pulling between 530-545 meg reads and 435-465 writes depending on the benchmark program you use.
Mushkin’s Reactor is priced very nice for a 1 TB drive, the controller is older but its solid. Note there is no software for the Reactor, Samsung has their Magician and Intel has their optimizer tool but Mushkin has nothing so you will have to tweak your OS manually to get the most out of it.
I guess the best way to describe the Reactor is that it’s not a flashy drive that has big marketing behind it, in fact it comes in a plain plastic clamshell with a Mushkin paper inlay. The drive uses tried and tested components that are not the absolute fastest thing out there but more than fast enough to be in the same class as the top end drives but it’s cheaper and it just works.
This part is just for reference for those in the market to upgrade or just curious. This new machine is built around a Intel I7-4790k(not OC’d), MSI Z97 Gaming 7 motherboard ,MSI GTX 970 videocard ,Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB DDR3 1600mhz. Testing the machine with some basic benchmarks shows that the new machine is almost 25% faster than my 4.4ghz overclocked 2600k I built in Dec 2011.
For my next machine that I build for myself I will seriously look at what Mushkin has on the market.
The Reactor is overall just a very good solid SSD that I will recommend to my friends.
I hope review\comment helps someone out there.
There are lots of forum posts and benchmarks claiming that an SSD isn't worth it in a PS4 because the PS4's aging SATA II drive interface can't take full advantage of an SSD's blistering speeds.
I'd like to push back on this claim on two fronts. One, SSDs are now affordable enough that the cost-per-GB argument is now little more than a way to justify one's own reluctance to spend money. It's the classic psychological tactic of devaluing something to hide one's own frustrated longing for it, like how you were mean to the boy/girl you had a crush on in fifth grade. Two, the idea that faster storage is "wasted" without SATA III's throughput ignores the fact that conventional HDDs can't even max out SATA I (150 MB/s). By that same logic, you could make the case that the PS4's stock hard drive represents a waste of the hardware's potential, modest though it is. Where gaming hardware is concerned, overkill is better than underkill, period. No, you won't hit linear reads and writes in excess of 500 MB/s on a PS4, but you will still absolutely blow the doors off ANY HDD. More importantly, an SSD's vastly superior random read/write speeds and IOPS (input-output per second) aren't constrained by SATA spec so you'll get your full money's worth there.
But that's all fairly academic. How does this translate into actual performance improvements? Here's what I've noticed so far:
1) Cold-booting is now so fast that the PS4 OS doesn't have time to load the irritating lawyer-appeasing "See Safety Warnings" message—it jumps straight into the home screen!
2) Bloodborne loads have gone from 45-60 seconds to 10-15. Whereas before I'd have to stare at 3-5 item descriptions, it now never goes past 1. Unfortunately, I put over 100 hours into the game before I put this drive in. Had I been playing with an SSD, my playtime probably would've been closer to 80 hours. :(
3) Loading missions in Destiny used to take an ungodly amount of time—we're talking several minutes in some cases. Now it usually takes less than a minute, constrained only by the obligatory story dialogue. The UI is also snappier overall (paging between menu screens, interacting with NPCs, etc.), but since a lot of Destiny's content is streaming from Bungie's servers, upgrading your hard drive mostly benefits single-player content (i.e. story missions).
4) There's no perceptible improvement in launching VOD services (Netflix et al) since the bottleneck there is network speed, not local storage.
5) Small games (think 2D indies) see minimal benefits.
5) Installing content is faster, but not that much faster. This is really the only area where the limitations of the PS4's SATA interface are obvious.
If you've always wanted to put an SSD in your PS4, now is the time, and this is the SSD. It's the best value for a 1TB drive on the market right now, and its MLC NAND should last longer than the cheaper TLC used in most competing drives. The only straightforwardly superior drive is Samsung's 850 EVO, but that costs about $80 more (as of this writing) and won't be any faster in a PS4. If you play a lot of big (30GB+) games and get them digitally, this will deliver a larger quality of life improvement than a new car or a raise. If you still play from discs, this SSD is the reason to go digital.
Mushkin doesn't have a lot of chittychatty support stuff on it's site - miss that a little. Doesn't come with cloning sw - but what mfrs include is seldom what I use, so - meh. The drive itself is MLC (2 bits per cell and a bit faster than TLC 3 bits per cell) - that and the price were incentive enough. Never gotten a bad Mushkin product and they came thru again with a speedy MLC ssd at a fine price. FreeTail seems to be fast and efficient and that is always nice. Met my expectations and listed speeds & MLC means roughly 2x the TLC life expectancy. Typical 'Mushky' - they put out without asking for a steak dinner and talking all evening about their cat/grandma/ex-boyfriends. I'm pleased at this point with my purchase.
This was a replacement drive for my aging OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB drive. I cloned my original using WD's version of Acronis (I have a MyBook as an external backup), running before and after tests with Crystal Disc Mark 1.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10. I was hoping for, at best, to get close to my old OCZ Vertex 4's performance, but I was not expecting it to exceed its performance on practically every front! Check the included pics...
Assuming this drive lasts, I can wholeheartedly recommend it. I've had my OCZ Vertex for about 2 years now as my main boot drive and have had no issues. I'm expecting the same from Mushkin; we'll see how it goes!

Si può impiegare ad ogni livello con un sicuro riscontro positivo da parte dell'utilizzatore.
Die Festplatte ist in einem ultraleichten und robusten Aluminiumgehäuse verschraubt untergebracht.
Da ich keine Software fand, die eine Festplatte bootfähig klonen kann und auch UEFI BIOS unterstützt,
habe ich die alte Festplatte mittels der kostenpflichtigen (15€) "Paragon Migrate OS to SSD" Software, welche das kopieren direkt unter Windows erledigt.
Dabei wird auch das neue UEFI BIOS unterstützt und automatisch auf der neuen Platte eingerichtet, wenn man das Häckchen setzt.
Kann diese Software nur weiterempfehlen. Völlig problemlos.
Nach rund 3 Stunden Kopiervorgang war die neue Festplatte startklar, mit einem deutlichen, SSD typischen Performancevorteil:
Bootvorgang 20sec vorher 55sec
Datenrate lesen bis 280Mbyte vorher 80Mbyte
Die Akkulaufzeit hat sich um ca. 15% verlängert, das Notebook ist nun absolut lautlos und kühl, solange der Lüfter sich nicht hinzuschalten muss.
